Evette’s Stand Up Paddling journey started four years ago. She got
hooked on this new sport when she noticed a great change in her fitness and endurance. Stand up paddling made her feel alive again, after suffering from Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome for 5 years. She soon got her entire family “on board”, with her husband and son also joining in on races.
Evette completed the Virtual Molokai2Oahu race in 2020 by completing a 26 km race from Clifton to Melkbosstrand. Her favourite races are the Pili Pili in Witsand as well as downwind races from Miller’s Point to Fish Hoek. Evette is ranked as third overall in Women’s paddling in South Africa – this being a ranking on her surfing and racing performance.
